Yeah Viridian Longbow is a great card, no mana cost to do damage; but i prefer Pathway Arrows because the secondary effect that say "If colorless creature is dealt damage in this way, tap it." can be useful vs some indestructible creatures ;-).For the red color i prefer to leave this deck monoblack, also for lands budget and some synergic cards like Erebos and Beseech the Queen. I saw some budget interesting cards like Genju of the Fens , Livewire Lash , Crypt of Agadeem and Bojuka Bog. What do you think?

Build drana right and you will have tons more mana than you know what to do with. Nirkana Revenant, Magus of the Coffers, Caged Sun, Crypt Ghast, Liliana of the Dark Realms, Gauntlet of Power, Extraplanar Lens, Doubling Cube, Black Market, Cabal Coffers, Nykthos, Shrine to Nyx, Crypt of Agadeem, Vesuva. I think that is most of the big ones. You don't need all of these btw, I'm just listing options. Though I wouldn't build drana without Liliana of the Dark Realms. It is just too good to have both. On top of all that you are playing black and eldrazi die to Tragic Slips all the time. If that is looking too expensive there are plenty of cheaper options but those can also easily be the only expensive cards in the deck. Everything else could be really cheap and it will still be a good deck.

Yahenni is another excellent commander choice i forgot to mention but you seem to have noticed.. it? Idk if yahenni has a specific gender

Anyways, "it" has excellent synergy with your Grave Pact, id even consider Dictate of Erebos to double up on the effects for yahenni

Im gonna agree with PookandPie here in that Necropotence is black's most powerful spell in edh alongside black tutors and Yawgmoth's Will

Id recommend extra mana ramp lands to get things out sooner and bolster Exsanguinate or Consume Spirit effects, the lands im referring to are the ones i mentioned earlier, Crypt of Agadeem, Cabal Coffers, Urborg, Tomb of Yawgmoth and perhaps even a Thespian's Stage to copy coffers or crypt for INSANE mana potential

Other than that, the deck looks solid now, maybe a Bonehoard, Cranial Plating or Lashwrithe to make your creatures massive?

Hey there.

Are you entirely sold on maralen for your mono-B? Shes good at denying card draw and synergy with stuff like Necropotence, but her tutor tends to enable opponente or allow them to tutor for answers to maralen

If you want "mono-B goodstuff" i would recommend either Sidisi, Undead Vizier or Geth, Lord of the Vault as commander, sidisi is kind of a just-you tutor in the command zone that triggers death based stuff with exploit such as Blood Artist, Black Market and Grave Pact, while geth allows you to run an artifact/mill subtheme and steal your opponents decks

I see you have bloodbond, which is a solid wincon with the lifesteal, but you're missing a budget staple wincon!

Exsanguinate is one of the best cards in mono B, when used in conjunction with Cabal Coffers, Crypt of Agadeem,Caged Sun or Nykthos, Shrine to Nyx you can easily pay X for lethal or, at the very least cripple opponents life total while gaining enough to put you in the lead

Other, more casual commander black commanders i have seen work well would be Gonti, Lord of Luxury, King Macar, the Gold-Cursed and Erebos, God of the Dead

If you're gonna stick to maralen, i would suggest you're going to want some kind of Mindlock Orb effect to stop your opponents tutoring for removal or combo pieces

More cuts, you say?

I'm not wildly keen on the amount of point-removal you're currently running. It's a little meta-dependent, but you're already running 7 vampires that can deal with opposing creatures, making the 10 instants and sorceries feel a bit extra. I would keep the vampires, and then run only the strongest/most flavorful of the other 10. Keep New Blood, Anguished Unmaking, Utter End, and Urge to Feed; cut Terminate, Swords to Plowshares, Mortify, Feast of Blood, Crackling Doom, and Victim of Night. I'd also advocate adding in Vindicate. Really none of the current instants you run are bad per se (I mean, Swords to Plowshares is the best removal spell printed in Magic), but in the interest of making meaningful space, this is where I'd start. Hell, if you really think you need more spot-shot, you could add Vish Kal, Blood Arbiter, though I don't care for his services. Vein Drinker is a solid option, however.

You could still trim a Sorin, though he is pretty nifty. Solemn Visitor is my least favorite.

Blind Obedience and Stensia Masquerade are somewhat unneeded. The Masquerade does improve some if you add in Rix Maadi, Dungeon Palace (actually, I recommend running Rix Maadi regardless). The Dungeon Palace also enables you to trim Call the Bloodline if you wish.

Blasphemous Act wants to become a Damnation, with Vampire Nocturnus in the deck.

You aren't running Cabal Coffers, Nykthos, Shrine to Nyx, or Black Market, so you only have Nirkana Revenant and Crypt of Agadeem to power up Exsanguinate. I think I'd cut it for a more impactful card.

On the topic of Nirkana Revenant, run more swamps! Yes, they're expensive, but you're going to have to track down two original duals (Scrubland and Badlands) and black fetches to make 3-color-Revenant functional. On the plus side, this would also enable Cabal Coffers, and the fetches synergize with Nocturnus. Bloodhusk Ritualist and Gatekeeper of Malakir will thank you likewise. Canyon Slough and Smoldering Marsh should at least replace some basic mountains.

Look at your color costs: You have only 10 red symbols, and 13 white. You don't need to run R/W dual lands (Sacred Foundry et al). You can get by with just black/x lands.

Blood Artist/Falkenrath Noble are better in Olivia Voldaren than Edgar. With Olivia, you want more sac-outlets to ditch borrowed creatures in the event of Olivia's downfall, so the drain effects are a little more consistently powerful. With Edgar at the helm, I think you'd want to add in Grave Pact and Dictate of Erebos to augment Butcher of Malakir and sacrifice effects such as Viscera Seer and Indulgent Aristocrat. Without all that, they just aren't reliable enough.

I strongly dislike Mathas, Fiend Seeker. Political play and Group Hug be damned- I want my opponents to suffer alongside me, not get free goodies.... bunch of filthy, free-loading, commie-hippies....

Herald’s Horn doesn't excite me unless you're at 50%+ creatures of the chosen tribe, which is a tall order for most tribes.

Teferi's Protection is sick, but Edgar puts out a lot of tokens, which feel bad with phasing. Not that it's a bad inclusion, but Angel's Grace might be more what you want if you really think you need a Ace of Saves (unlikely). Or if you're after the board protection, Boros Charm could be considered, though it won't help with Merciless Eviction and tuck sweeps.
